The Love Of God Revealed (Wilt)

The Love Of God Revealed
Dan Wilt

(lyrics only)

From the dust of time eternal,

From the breath of Heav’ns Adored;

Rose the man amid creation,

Rose the woman at his side;

Singing “Praise, praise to the Father,

And the covenant He brings,”

Then the weeping, then the groaning

For the Love of God revealed


From the lips of prophet sages,

In the streets of chosen land;

Came the words of sweet redemption,

To the woman and the man;

Singing “Life, Life is the ransom,

And the only healing stream,”

Then the beating, then the scorning,

Of the Love of God revealed.


From within Death’s shadowed chambers,

Came a whispered melody,

As the Father’s life and freedom,

Stirred within the Lord asleep,

Singing “Rise, rise from the ashes,

And destroy the ancient foe,”

With the keys of death and dying,

Rose the Love of God revealed


Now the earth has seen its folly,

Fallen back upon its head,

And the heav’ns have reeled with glory;

As her chosen are prepared,

Singing “Hope, hope is the anthem,

And the anchor for the soul,”

As the Spirit e’er renews us,

With the Love of God revealed


Soon the eyes of all the ages,

Will behold the risen Son;

As the King of vast creation,

Calls His chosen to His side;

Singing “Praise, praise to the Father,

And the covenant He sealed,”

Come you sons and come you daughters,

To the Love of God revealed.

Come you sons and come you daughters,

to the Love of God revealed.

Sheltering Mercy helps us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. This book contains 75 prayers drawn from Psalms 1-75, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning in the Psalms. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

This artful, poetic, and classic devotional book features compelling custom illustrations and foil-stamped hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms. Co-written with Ryan Whitaker Smith, Brazos Publishing.
